As a fact, many students expressed their utter dismay with the sudden notification on exams. A majority of them complained about releasing the notice without prior information. Others are concern about their unpreparedness.
“We are not ready. It was announced that only final-year PG exam will be held,” said an MTech student, Aditya Singh.
Aditi Srivastava said, “This last-minute announcement will affect our scores as we are not prepared.”
However, the spokesperson of AKTU said, “Since there are no theoretical examinations in the last year of MTech, MPharma and March, we had to schedule the examination for the first year.
Final year is based on practical and dissertation. It will be wrong to award a degree on the basis of just one theory examination held earlier.”
Added to this, he assured students that these examinations will not be difficult enough. Only multiple-choice questions will be given and prior to the exams, university will also provide a mock test series.
